Earlier this year we cut some cake and popped some champagne to celebrate Media Molecule’s sixth birthday!! We have had an awesome time during the last six years, with the highlight being the joy of seeing how the experiment we started here in Guildford has grown and given rise to a thriving LittleBigPlanet community. This year will be no different, filled with DLC, plus more brand new experiments from the LBP family for you to play with.

You already know about the fantastic LBP work that Tarsier Studios and Double Eleven Studios are doing on LittleBigPlanet for PlayStation Vita, and now we are delighted to announce today a new LBP collaboration with the hugely talented team at United Front Games who will be leading a new project called LittleBigPlanet Karting! We’ve all seen that UFG has a wealth of racing experience and they’re also intimately familiar with LBP’s cornerstones of “PLAY, CREATE, SHARE.” With LBP’s powerful and diverse toolset in their capable hands, LittleBigPlanet Karting is sure to be an adventure that both LBP fans and kart racing fans alike will enjoy! We are very eager to see what you think of this union and especially excited to see what happens now that you have a 3D environment to create in! It’s the start of a whole new LBP world! Have a look at the debut trailer to see for yourself.

 

 

Thank you so much for your continued support of LittleBigPlanet!

Lots of love,
Kareem, Dave, Alex, Mark & Siobhan – Media Molecule

One is written by Media Molecule, the other is San Diego Studios.

One is called Modnation Racers, the other is called LittleBigPlanet Racing.

One has random characters in it, the other has Sackboy.

I could go on... :Lol:

Watch the trailer.....They look completey different. Probably feel different aswell. Whats the difference between Mario kart and diddy kong racing? They are still both fun to play.

I've watched the trailer twice. I'm still not seeing any difference.

You can be forgiven for that as both LBP & Modnation Teams are working together on this title.

 

Still, how much different can it be to MNR?

This is essentially MNR 2, its just that Sackboy sells games better than Tag.
